Abstract: One of Cornell’s greatest assets is its ability to foster an interdisciplinary research culture. That culture is seen at work in this issue of Connecting with Cornell as it spans the 230 miles between the Cornell-Ithaca and Weill Cornell Medical College campuses. What makes this issue special is that we see not only how Cornell faculty bridge the distance between the two campuses but also how the university nurtures collaborations and exciting new results unfold. Cutting-edge research and innovative approaches to teaching undergraduate and graduate students evolve as Cornell broadens its interdisciplinary culture. Surgeons and engineers look for solutions to problems such as wound healing and tissue engineering. Social scientists and physicians search for ways to help alleviate some of the problems in global health. Life scientists and physicians study some of the world’s most vexing diseases. Physicians and social scientists work on problems associated with aging. Engineers and radiologists concentrate on CT imaging as preventive measures for diseases. Cornell-Ithaca and Weill Cornell Medical College faculty develop new courses and research experiences for students on both campuses. As the Cornell faculty seek solutions to problems in human health, a new array of collaborations opens up new directions in research, teaching, and outreach for the benefit of human health.
